artconnexion enjoys regional, national and international recognition for its know-how as a producer of works commissioned by civil society in the context of public and private collaborations.
As mediator-producer for the “New Patrons” programme initiated by the Fondation de France, artconnexion accompanies art commissions that respond to the desires and needs of citizens. Since 2000, artconnexion has produced over forty socially-engaged artworks in Northern France, Norway, Poland and the UK.
The New Patrons programme allows citizens confronted with social or local development issues in their territory to involve contemporary artists in response to their concerns, by commissioning an artwork.
Its originality is based on the conjunction between three privileged actors: the artist, the commissioning citizen and the mediator-producer accompanied by public and private partners involved in the project.
